@brendan Usually, they like to have 3 consecutive bad labs to consider your kidneys are not functioning properly. So hopefully your next labs will come back ok.

RE: low kidney function
RE: aches and pains normal with vitamin d deficiency
@piyush-ashish 3 is pretty low, you could have some nasty symptoms. You may be better off checking with your doctor that your symptoms are all caused by vitamin D deficiency though.
RE: Low folic Acid
@barbien Folic acid level below 3.0 ng / mL is considered a deficient state. But, you need not worry, take the medication prescribed by the GP and get your blood tested in three months. The reading usually reaches within a safe level.
RE: Am i allergic to all these fruits ?
@riad Hi Riad, People can be allergic to basically anything, it can start at any time, they can worsen, some foods have common allergens, so you may have to avoid a few things due to one allergy...food allergies are pretty common, you can be allergic to types of proteins, sugars & all kinds of preservatives that may be on or part of the food...seeing an Allergist for food testing is the best thing you can do, then you either avoid those foods(it will make it so much easier KNOWING which foods are an issue)
RE: Itching Skin: Help!!
@adambrown it sounds like an allergy to something you are using, maybe shower gel or similar.
You could also ask your local pharmacist for a suggestion.
I don't know how often you shower but ease up on your showers for a couple of weeks and look at the products you use, including what you wash your clothes in. It does sound like one of those.
Something like E45 cream will soothe your skin too.
RE: Could these symptoms caused by anxiety or is it something else?
@mellisa Hi Mellisa with all these different symptoms, I would suggest that you visit your doctor as soon as possible because it could a number of various ailments or it could be nothing and just that you are just very anxious, a doctor’s visit is the best option. You may be afraid to go to a doctor, but with this mix of symptoms it is best you do. Get a friend or family member to go with you the first time. Sometimes we just need someone to hold our hand and lend a second ear to what the doctor says.
RE: Severe gastritis - should I be worried?
@anastashia I’m sorry you are going through this.
basically, stress and anxiety can definitely bring it on because stress and anxiety cause acid release into the stomach. So if you’re going through something in your life you might want to think about counseling to find ways to reduce the stress.
secondly, avoid acidic foods and drinks! You will want to eat foods that are more alkaline rather than acidic. You can go online and look those foods up. Stay away from junk food, pop, red meats, etc. eat more of the fresh vegetables, very lean chicken, etc all online.
it’s better to eat five small meals a day rather than three large meals! Healthy alkaline snacks can count for one of the five small meals in between.
stay hydrated by drinking lots of water throughout the day! I switched from regular milk to unsweetened almond milk. It’s easier on the stomach. Also, unsweetened coconut milk is very good for you.
get a little exercise even if it’s just walking.
RE: Are period problems an indication of the PCOS?
@neelu-kaur Polycystic ovary syndrome PCOS is a hormonal imbalance that affects a woman's hormone levels. Women with PCOS produce more male hormones than normal. This hormonal imbalance causes them to miss their periods and makes it difficult for them to conceive. PCOS is becoming more common in women today as a result of infertility. This issue is more prevalent in women between the ages of 15 and 30. PCOS affects one out of every ten women in India. Aside from that, some women are unable to receive treatment due to a lack of knowledge.
RE: Menopause having these symptoms
@diane Most of us here know how you are feeling, I hope you have been to see your Dr about how you are, ie blood tests? Menopause certainly can cause all those feelings, have a read of the 66 symptoms of Menopause you will find it here. Some ladies have strange symptoms. Cut out caffeine, cola, etc. get some good probiotics high strength and vitamin bs. Take a walk, and listen to relaxing music. Distract your mind if you can, and be kind to yourself. Have a chat with your Dr, please
If your hormones & PH are constantly fluctuating every other day. it's probably more than just PMS...
RE: Side effects of overactive thyroid( loosening of nails, please help)
@clairy you need to tell your GP you feel like this and get them to give you a slip to have a blood test. Tell them you also want a full blood count. As sometimes carbimazole lowers your white blood count and you can get very run down, hence your nails. Also because you are overactive your digestive and metabolism is being worked faster so you may be expelling the calcium you need always helps nails. So maybe an idea to go to a chemist or go and get a prescription from doctors for calcium supplements. The main thing is not to stress, try some meditation videos on YouTube, as stressing will make symptoms worse. Good luck with your journey.
